Meditation For Healing Emotional Pain

October 17, 2023

Meditation is a practice for developing awareness of the present moment and has been shown to offer a number of physical and psychological benefits. It can reduce stress, strengthen the immune system, improve heart health, and increase brain size and grey matter. It can also help reduce blood pressure, decrease cholesterol and the buildup of plaque in coronary arteries, and enhance healing.

In meditation, you can focus on a mantra or word that is repeated over and over while focusing your attention on your breathing and the sensations in your body. The result is a feeling of deep relaxation, and this natural state supports the body’s ability to heal itself from stress and illness. Countless studies show that people who are calmer and more relaxed recover from illness and injury more quickly than those who are stressed and in a state of fight or flight.

Many times when someone meditates, thoughts come up that are difficult to deal with, such as a painful memory or a painful relationship. This is normal, and the goal of meditation is not to suppress feelings but to acknowledge them and let them pass by without judgement. Then you can refocus your attention on your breath and return to the focus of your meditation.

Studies have shown that long-term mindfulness meditation can decouple the sensory experience of pain with the evaluation of what it means to the meditator. This can be a significant advantage for patients who are seeking narcotic-free pain relief.
